Koshary by Misteka

Near the entrance, Koshary by Misteka offers a “build-yourown” taste of the savory national dish of Egypt. Koshary, its namesake food, is a vegan dish comprising rice, quinoa, lentils, pasta, chickpeas, sauce, dukkah and fried onions. The stand also serves falafel salads and whole-wheat pita.

 

Owner Iman Moussa, who believes that food is a powerful universal language, says she has no plans to sell her own desserts. A friend, the owner of Kupcakes & Co. located next door, connected her to Castillo and The Common Kitchen.

 

“I’m not here to compete; I’m here to enrich and add value,” she says. “We instantly felt like a family, and I hope it stays that way.”
